Carnegie Mellon Quiz Bowl is pleased to announce that we will host Carnegie Quiz III on our Pittsburgh campus on Saturday, February 15, 2020. The field is capped at 24 teams with the potential to expand depending on staff.

Questions: NAQT IS-190

To register, please fill out this form or email us at [email protected] with with your school name and the number of teams, buzzers, and moderators you plan to bring. Registration will close on Saturday, February 8, a week before the tournament.

Fees and Discounts:
$75 for first team
$65 per additional team
-$10 per fully functional buzzer system (at least eight working buzzers)
-$15 per experienced moderator
-$20 per team for schools new to quiz bowl (IU competitions do not count against this)

The minimum fee per team is $40.

Payment: We expect payment (cash or checks made out to “Carnegie Mellon University”) on the morning of the tournament. Please email if you need to make other arrangements.

Teams should aim to arrive by 8:30 am, after which we will have an opening meeting followed by morning gameplay. The exact number of rounds and playoff/finals format will be determined by the field size. As the tournament approaches, more detailed logistical information will be provided to registered teams.

We will use a standard game format with powers and negs. Rounds will be untimed, but we will keep the tournament moving at a fast and consistent pace.

Nationals Qualification:
The top 15% of the field will qualify for the 2020 NAQT HSNCT, while the top 30% of eligible small schools will qualify for the 2020 SSNCT. Top teams will also qualify for PACE NSC.

IMPORTANT: We take safety at this tournament extremely seriously, and involved staffers at this tournament have been background-cleared at the state and federal level. Under PA Act 153 regulations, all students participating in this tournament MUST present a signed waiver from CMU's Child Protection Services in order to play. We will email a PDF of this waiver to each team upon registration. If students are under 18 years of age, a parent must cosign.
